[Surgical resection with ophthalmoplastic reconstruction : Gold standard in periocular basal cell carcinoma].
Abstract The gold standard for the treatment of periocular basal cell carcinoma is surgical resection followed by ophthalmoplastic reconstruction. The highest priority in most cases is the complete histopathologically controlled tumor excision. The histopathological preparation can be carried out in two stages by rapid overnight embedding or intraoperatively by a rapid frozen section procedure. A variety of reconstruction methods enable a customized and in most cases also a cosmetically and functionally attractive defect coverage. Postoperatively, a regularly performed tumor aftercare is essential. ...

[Treatment adherence and effectiveness of anti-Vascular Endothelial Growth Faktor(VEGF) treatment of diabetic macular edema in the clinical routine : Comparison between cooperative and unicentric organization of treatment].
Abstract BACKGROUND: Intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an established method for treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME); however, to ensure the best possible functional results continuous treatment of patients over a long period with regular control visits are necessary. The adherence of patients to the treatment is of great importance for success. METHODS: In order to make implementation of treatment easier for patients, an internet-based referral platform was established to enable the follow-up examination to be performed by an ophthalmologist using spectal ...

[Conjunctival malignancies].
d T Abstract Conjunctival malignancies are rare. However, some of these tumors are among the most aggressive malignancies in ophthalmology and require radical forms of therapy that may lead to blindness or loss of the ipsilateral eye and tumor-associated death. The most relevant primary conjunctival malignancies for oncologists are squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma and malignant lymphoma. Surgical therapy is the primary treatment for squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. An adjuvant therapy in the form of topical chemotherapy or radiation is necessary in most cases. The isolated malignant lymph...

[Lamellar macular holes : Morphological characteristics and treatment success].
CONCLUSION: Further development of imaging techniques, such as SD-OCT led to improved visualization of different types of LMH. Decisions on treatment should be based on subjective complaints, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), the clinical course, the presence of defects of the ellipsoid zone, occurrence and characteristics of epiretinal tissue. In cases of progression of symptoms and/or traction by the epiretinal tissue, an early surgical procedure has a good prognosis for functional and anatomical rehabilitation.

[Outcome of pterygium excision after various surgical techniques-is excision with simple conjunctival closure still lege artis?]
CONCLUSION: In our opinion the method of SE is not obsolete. Good results can be achieved with SE in pterygia with a small extent. The lowest recurrence rate was seen after BHT; therefore, BHT is the method of choice in general and especially for larger pterygia. The higher recurrence rate after intraoperative use of MMC is probably caused by selection bias. Regular follow-up examinations are required beyond the first postoperative year for timely detection of delayed recurrence.

Abstract The introduction of perfluorocarbon liquids (PFCL) resuled in a significant change in vitreoretinal surgery. Even complicated retinal detachments could be treated reliably and successfully. The combination of vitrectomy with the use of PFCL was one of the decisive factors for the continuing success of pars plana vitrectomy (ppV) in addition to technical refinements. The PFCLs have become an established part of vitreoretinal surgery due to their wide range of application and the positive intraoperative influence. When applied correctly and intelligently, PFCL can serve as the third hand of a reti...

[Surgery of large and persistent macular holes].
Abstract Modern macular hole surgery results in high closure rates of over 90% and good functional results especially in macular holes up to 400 µm in diameter. The standard of care in most of these cases consists of transconjunctival sutureless pars plana vitrectomy, peeling of the inner limiting membrane (ILM) around the hole, followed by gas tamponade and positioning of the patient. As closure rates and functional results decrease with larger macular hole diameters over approximately 400 µm, alternative surgical techniques have been introduced to improve anatomical and functional results in thes...

[Neurotrophic keratopathy : Principles, diagnostics and treatment].
Abstract Corneal nerves are responsible for the reception of pain, temperature, and touch and are an important component of homeostasis of the ocular surface. When the corneal innervation is reduced, degenerative changes can be manifested as neurotrophic keratopathy (NK). In a stage-dependent course, corneal epithelial alterations and ulcers may occur, even leading to perforation. The cause of NK is predominantly damage to the trigeminal nerve, which can be caused by infections (especially herpesviruses), metabolic diseases (such as diabetes mellitus) and by surgical procedures. The diagnosis of NK requires a...

CONCLUSION: Despite the occurrence of a space-occupying lesion of the eyelid in a young adult patient and also with no further risk factors, in addition to an inflammatory event and a benign tumor, a malignant disease, such as a basal cell carcinoma should also be taken into consideration. A tissue biopsy or complete excision with subsequent histological examination including an immunohistochemical analysis are essential for differentiation from other tumor entities.

[Macular changes in optic disc pits-Optic disc pit maculopathy (ODP-M) : Pathophysiology and possibilities of surgical treatment].
Abstract An optic disc pit is a rare congenital abnormality of the optic nerve, which in most cases presents as a unilateral finding. Clinically, a greyish oval excavation is seen, most commonly on the temporal side of the optic nerve disc. The optic disc pit alone normally does not lead to substantial symptoms or functional limitations; however, when a maculopathy with intraretinal and/or subretinal fluid and additional other morphological changes in the macula occur, this leads to a decrease in visual acuity. With spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) it is possible to identify...

Abstract A major milestone in the treatment of complex retinal detachment was the development of heavy fluids as intraoperative short-term tamponades. Since the introduction liquid perfluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons are particularly noteworthy. Irrespective of the suitability of the substances in principle, the purity during the manufacturing process is a decisive factor that determines possible side effects. Also, the direct exchange with silicone oil can lead to mixing with disadvantageous results. Retinal surgeons should be informed about the properties of the tamponades used.
